This place is GIGANTIC. It's like a Big R, Farm n Fleet, and Walmart all rolled into one.
They have nearly everything you could need that isn't beer... And quite a good selection of beer itself...
The beer department is also pretty supersized-- lots of shelfspace dedicated to craft, tons of singles, and a huge walk-in cooler filled with a majority of BMC beers.
I was specifically looking for Rivertowne Lambic-- I found it in droves... In fact, they had lots of gueuze.
They had 3F Oude Gueuze, 3F Schaarbeekse Kriek, Hannsens Oude gueuze, Hannsens Oude Kriek, Hannsens Experimental Lambics, and even the Hannsens Scarenbecca Kriek.
I was quite pleased with the selection, as they had everything I was hoping to get.
The prices were reasonable or even inexpensive for the bombers and 750s... The 6 packs were average priced... The singles were highly marked up, but I forgive them.
Overall, this place is absolutely worth the trip!

I was doing some work as a company rep at the JC Penny distribution center down the road from here during December. When I saw this Andersons driving home one day I knew it'd become a problem - I started going in a couple times a week for the rest of the month!
Typical Andersons in that the quality is good, large general store/grocery format. The beer is set up differently from the location off Sawmill. There is a central display area with macro cases and Bells mini kegs. Behind this is one row of Belgian and import beers, some gift sets, Jolly Pumpkin, etc.
After some anxious hunting I finally located the rest of the beer slightly off-center in a back corner of the store. There's a very small cooler, followed by some sixers on one side of an aisle and bombers/singles on the other. Behind this is another aisle of more sixers and imports.
Overall a good selection (great, even, by many standards). But the selection was easily worse than the Sawmill location, and the singles weren't even close to the massive amount offered at Sawmill.
Prices are typical of a chain, on the lower side, though not the cheapest out there.

A few things have changed since I have last been to this location. Most notably the best change is the expanded selections of larger format bottles and singles. They also have more 6 packs broken up into singles.
The new selections of bombers and 750s is separated from the rest of the beer. It occupies one side of its own long shelf. I was really surprised at some of the beers here. They carry a few Jolly Pumpkin beers, which are only in a few shops around town. I picked up a Biere de Mars, there was also a lot of La Roja. This shelf also held Speedway Stout, Alesmith IPA, lots of Stone, Avery Seventeen and lots of nice Belgians and Trappist stuff.
The rest of the beer is basically how I remember it from about a year ago. It is in the back corner area of the store. One smallish cooler has lots of Bell's, Founder's, DFH; basically Columbus's regular 6-pack stuff. From there the 6-pack shelves seem to keep going and going. Along the back side is where all the imports are. They have an extensive selection of imports.
Other than the newly extended selection of bombers and 750s the rest is pretty average, unless you are looking for stuff from England, Germany, Ireland or Scotland. In which case this is where you need to go.

Everytime I've asked for assistance the staff has been very considerate as I'm always walking in with a long list. They also have a nice array of singles to choose from but no boxes or cartons are available to put them in.
I once tagged along with the clerk in charge of the department, while a distributor rep was there, and was on the receiving end of a few handy tips on what to look for.
Unfortunately though prices are not always clearly marked so you have to do a little recon first. I frequent this store at least once a week. Roland:D
